    replied to CST 280 or Maxstar 200
    Can't comment on the CST, but I have a Maxstar 200 in my shop at work. Its very portable, and when I have to do work in any of the buildings or tunnels I have no clue what power is around for my whip to get tied into. We have everything you can imagine from 120 single phase to 480 three phase and everything...

    Hydraulic vs Mechanical

    A shop I used to work at bought a used mechanical brake.... Great big old machine that saw production use in WWII.. I put all new controls on it, and it got the job done. But it was scary as heck bending large plate, having to use the foot pedal clutch and being...

    BD, the uninsulated ductwork isn't a big operations issue as it *technically* meets code, but being that this project is for the President's Ballroom, and will only run when there is an event, in the summer its setback temp is 85, and operating is 72... I can't wait for the day they have a big event...

    This is one of those jobs where the grid went up too soon too... They are trying to finish the job through the grid... Even better our construction supervisor decided it was ok to let them not insulate the ductwork to save money, and never told us about it, so I am jumping up and down at the GC and...

    Would you do this?

    So I work for a local university as an HVAC tech and I also handle all the pipefitting and other work along those lines. As such I hold certs for both 6G pipe and D1.1 for structural work. Unfortunately as construction projects seem to go, management has a tendency to let the tile, carpet, paint get...

    replied to Snow Plow Blade Repair
    That reminds me of a pair of plow blades I fixed up back in 07. Both were in decent shape, but had worn thin at the top of the curve at the top of the skeleton. I had lots of time to kill and got paid by the hr...I was a maintenance guy at a warehouse at the time... I ended up cleaning them up and...

    Wear good gear, leather sleeves at a minimum! Also get comfortable, I just tested for my D1.1 1" plate and by the time I got done running 1/8 7018 my arms wanted to fall off!! Keep a nice tight steady bead and you will do just fine! AND CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN!!! Cant forget that!

  • Thats one good bit of advertising you found there!! Thats what the inside of a condensate pipe looks like after being left untreated for about 10years... After working in a facility that utilized over 1000 aggregate HP of air compressors and refrigerated and dessicant driers, some piping being in service...

    replied to New to me Bobcat
    I was going back and forth between that and a Ranger 10,000... The bobcat was closer so i went there first. Got it for a grand, so I definatley cant complain about that. Runs beautifully, the paint job was $40 well spent. Just have to get different decals. I got the new style Miller ones, and they...

    Ok, so I am looking to add an engine driven welder/generator to my shop... Looking for something used, and with a decent sized genny to run the house for a power outage. Looking on craigslist, there is a fairly rough looking Bobcat 225Plus with ~600hrs , and a halfway decent looking Lincoln Ranger...

  • Well....I have a 150STL, and have done 6010 roots, its not the easiest thing to do..but its doable. Ive had to use 3/32 5P keep a very tight arc, and really couldnt whip it like you can on a bigger machine. I dont think the machine has enough potential to sustain the arc through a big whip. Cant speak...
